Basics of Sewing

Learn basic hand-sewing techniques and even some basics of working with a sewing machine! We will cover a variety of stitches, explain when they are best used, and give examples of projects you can take on using the stitch demonstrated.

This program series is virtual with new videos released every Monday and Friday in September on JDL’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. Videos will remain available once they are posted, so you can revisit them at any time!
